LeBron James of the reigning NBA champion Miami Heat is coming to Manila on July 23.

The NBA superstar will be attending an event organized by Nike Philippines. The event is part of Nike's "Leave a Message" campaign which aims to inspire  Filipino hopefuls to strive for greatness just like the two-time NBA champion.

Tickets to the event are for free and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basi at Nike Park in Bonifacio Global City starting Wednesday, July 17, at 12:00 noon. Only two tickets will be given to each individual.


On the same breath, fans in this basketball-hungry country will also have a special chance to leave a personal message for James through social media like Twitter and Facebook, radio and retail activation that started Friday.

By visiting the Nike Basketball Facebook and Twitter pages, fans can "leave a message" for the two-time champion and four-time MVP along with a picture of themselves that express a personal message to the player everyone calls "The King."

Nike Phl instructs the caption of the photo should tag Nike Basketball Phl  (https://www.facebook.com/nikebasketball.phils) on Facebook or tag @NikePH on Twitter, both including the hashtag #WITNESSHISTORY.

Filipino fans can witness history and see LeBron live on July 23. Tickets will be distributed at Nike Park in Bonifacio Global City at 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 17. Tickets are free of charge and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Only two tickets will be given per person.

Also scheduled to fly to the Philippines this month are Houston Rocket star James Harden and New Orleans Pelican Eric Gordon, who will be gracing the NBA 3X Philippines 2013 on July 26 to 28 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
